my friday

I finished my tea towel for Pat Sloan's swap's a secret who I will send this too...I hope she likes it. I loved embroidering that bunny. It went fast. There's a new fabric store in my town. It opened 3 days ago. I promptly went in to check out what they have.

Their yardage varies from $4 -$8 a yard. I did pick up a few 1/2 yards but I cut them into fats for the swap above.

I about freaked when I saw these beautiful threads...but they are size 5 pearl cotton...and I prefer size 8 so I passed on buying any.

And they have an awesome selection of towels for applique....loved that. Like I said I didn't get much. I spent the rest of my day at my office working through charts. I have had some big changes in my office and more will's going to be tough for awhile.
Today I have been working on a quilt that I wanted to start weeks ago...just getting it layered for quilting now. I have to get stuff together for an impromtu trip to my home state this next weekend...that means laundry, packing and getting projects ready for the road trip. I don't know how much blogging I will do this week...we'll see.

Very cute tea towel. Someone is gonna be happy to receive that. And those perle cotton balls of threads do look pretty there. But I'm with you, I prefer size 8.

What a nice treat to have a new shop in town. The tea towel is great! Whoever receives it is truly going to love it! I love the fantastic colors of the perle cottons, but would you mind explaining to me the difference between a size 5 and size 8. I am relatively new to stitchery and I am assuming that size 8 is smaller strands.
